Stronger regulations for medical products

Freitag, 16. Juni 2017, 13:56 Uhr

After years of negotiation, the European parliament has finally launched regulations to ensure that medical products are monitored more and more closely. These quality controls are intended to prevent defective products from entering the market and thus the human body. As a preventative measure unannounced checks will be carried out by manufacturers and testing organizations.

Regulations require tracking chips

The new regulations also require implants to be equipped with electronic chips linked to an implant register – the patient’s information must be included. This enables the tracing of various information including origin, type, and serial number of the implant, and thus ensures safety.

If this information was stored in a Blockchain, the complete history of a medical product could be shown transparently. Even the last component of an implant could be examined including its origins and falsifications.

Supply chain improved with Blockchain

All steps in the supply chain are written into a Blockchain in the form of transactions and are no longer erasable due to the decentralized nature of the database. This makes it possible to eliminate third-party control systems, while ensuring the highest level of product safety.
